HEADS UP! If you have this in your collection you probably want to remove the insert from the sleeve right now. I haven't played mine for 8-10 years and this evening I noticed the ink on the insert had smudged onto the vinyl. Leaving a "mirror print" of the motif on the grooves - and ruining the last 4 rotations of Aquarius. Chinook is unhurt.

If you buy these tracks from Skam's MP3 download store, "Aquarius" has a running time of 6:10, and "Chinook" is 7:25. What's on the MP3s are the same versions as what's on the original 7" single. Presumably, the MP3s were made from the master tapes, so their track times are probably more accurate than what's listed here at discogs. (I guess the timings listed here were estimated from playback on a turntable that was running slightly fast.)

Aquarius is based on the first minute or so of Aquarius from the Hair original soundtrack (not the Original Broadway Cast recording though which is nothing like it) to the point of being a blatant steal! But at the same time the sheer subtlety of the re-editing makes this a hugely original work in the way it transforms the original completely out of context and genre.
